About the workshop

Anne Basting, PhD has pioneered a creative approach in how we interact with our older loved ones, especially those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. She has introduced a proven method that uses the creative arts to bring light and joy to the lives of our aging loved ones. Rooted in 25 years of research, her approach fosters storytelling and active listening, allowing loved ones to freely share ideas and stories. These practices stimulate the brain and awaken the imagination to add wonder and awe to our daily lives, allowing family caregivers to connect with their loved ones.

Her latest book – Creative Care: A Revolutionary Approach to Dementia and Elder Care - is a beautiful compilation of her techniques and methods for caregivers, healthcare practitioners, anyone with an aging loved one. Join our workshop to hear from Basting on her revolutionary approach!
